Severe constipation after colonoscopy

I had a colonoscopy 2 months ago and it’s been hell to get my intestines normalized.   I’ve been to the ER 3x for pain that was one week after the procedure and severely backed up.  I’ve had painful bloating, painful BMs WHEN I had them now I have severe constipation.  I lost 10lbs in 5wks because of the fear of eating something that will blow me up. Now my GI Dr wants to test me for SIBO.  Anyone else have lasting problems after a colonoscopy?
